Our Certified Trainers have also been through the My Personal Trainer program themselves. They truly understand what it takes to be successful and what they’re asking of you.
“Dreams don’t work unless you do”- In 2012 I started to gain interest in trail-running as a hobby. From day one I could not complete a full mile without having to take a break. Less than one year later, I ran my first trail race- a 25k (15.6 miles)! I was dedicated and committed to reaching that goal of mine. I have been a part of the “My Personal Trainer” team since 2013. Everyday I experience true commitment from our clients and I wholeheartedly enjoy sharing their success! What I like most about what we do, is our relationships that we build and maintain with our clients. I am proud to say we are not a revolving door, we truly care about your success!
I’ve always been a fitness enthusiast. I was a regular at the gym starting in my teens and took an interest in wanting to live a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy running and wanted to get stronger and faster so I joined My Personal Trainer in 2007. The program helped me achieve a 14% body fat* while putting on 18 lbs* of fat burning lean muscle. As a trainer with MPT, I focus on motivating my clients to do their best, feel great about their accomplishments and grow in their personal fitness journey.
I played tennis and did kickboxing but I wasn’t able to lose the weight I gained in my twenties. My mother was a client and I saw her achieve her goals with amazing results. So I joined My Personal Trainer at 24. I’d never done strength training before and 20 minutes twice a week fit my school and work schedule. I lost 20 lbs* in 5 weeks! I believe in My Personal Trainer so much that I started working for them in 2011. It’s amazing to see clients reach their personal weight goals and get stronger and healthier.
I was introduced to strength training in middle school through sports and decided to stick with it as a personal hobby not realizing that Id make a career of it in the future. After working in the corporate world for many years and realizing it wasn’t for me, I decided to do a 360 with my career and become a personal trainer with MY PERSONAL TRAINER Inc. Over the past 10 years I’ve personally helped more than 1000 men and women achieve their fitness goals. I highly regard my profession, for the positive impact it has on our client’s lives. Doctors treat those that have health problems, priests help with ones soul, and MY PERSONAL TRAINER improves or cures people’s health problems. Currently I own and operate 3 successful locations and looking to further expand our healthy imprint on the Northeast Ohio area.
I joined the My Personal Trainer in Westlake as a fitness enthusiast. I am an upbeat and positive person and have always loved being active and participating in physically challenging activities, especially outdoors (hiking, kayaking, rock climbing, etc.). It wasn’t until I had my second child and was slow to return to a physique and health level with which I was comfortable that I graduated from living an active lifestyle to being zealously dedicated to fitness; increasing the intensity of my workouts and training for a triathlon. I am inspired daily by people in the fitness community who have taken control of their health and bodies and are committed to living healthy. Working at My Personal Trainer gives me the chance to teach, learn from, and support my clients in their journeys to their best selves. My goal is to understand, educate, and motivate those who I train so I can celebrate with, congratulate, and be proud of them as they hit their fitness goals and achievements.
I graduated from college with Bachelors in Web Design as well as an Associate’s Degree in Marketing. At 25 my life drastically changed, my mother had a severe stroke at 60 years old leaving her paralyzed. I quit my job to become her full time caretaker and rehabilitation coach. She passed away a few months after and it was then that I decided to make my own health a priority. I Lost 46lbs myself and in doing so I realized my passion was people and I wanted to be able to help others reach their goals. That’s when I discovered My Personal Trainer. I believe through the use of motivation, dedication, and proper progressive strength training, every individual has the ability to achieve their ideal physique. In my 5 years with the company I ‘ve been able to be a part of so many success stories my clients have become my second family!
My love for the fitness and wellness industry began as my own personal journey in my late teens. I was struggling as an overweight adolescent and decided to do something about it. After losing 50 lbs* in 2002, I dedicated my life to help others do the same. It is my mission to help people lose pounds of undesirable fat while reclaiming self-esteem. I can’t explain how fulfilling it is to see individuals apply themselves to reach obtainable goals and improve all facets of their lives. It will be a privilege to help you write your success story.
During high school I was introduced to personal training by working in the rehab center that was part of a major hospital group. I loved the interaction with the members and helping people achieve their goals. Since graduating I went through so many places trying to find that exact same environment with no luck. Five years ago I joined the My Personal Trainer team and there is no job so rewarding. Having clients past and present sharing their success stories to their friends and family is a great feeling and continuing the tradition to new members is very important to us.
Fitness has always been a big part of my life growing up. I’ve played competitive soccer since the age of 4 and played collegiately at Baldwin Wallace University. After the end of my competitive career, finding the motivation to continue to stay fit was a challenge. At BW I received a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and minor in Sports Coaching. As a soccer coach, it has taught me how to give back and to push people/players to be their very best. Becoming a Personal Trainer has helped me continue my active lifestyle while teaching and learning from other trainers while building my experience as a new trainer. The possibilities are endless. Nothing is more rewarding than helping clients at MPT reach their fitness goals and achievements.
I was first introduced to strength training and exercise though playing football in high school. Since then I have always had a passion for health and fitness and learned the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As a result, I have worked with many different populations such as youth sports and adaptive fitness. I am currently in the process of finishing my master’s degree in Exercise Science at Cleveland State University. Working at My Personal Trainer gives me the opportunity to use my education to teach, motivate, and improve the quality of life of each client on their journey to living a healthier lifestyle. The best part of working at MPT is the cohesiveness between the trainers and the relationships amongst each client. There is nothing that compares to the joy of setting a goals and achieving them. I enjoy helping others reach obtainable goals and improve their quality of life.
